SLACKCOUNTRY FREERIDE ST FOY
COURSE DATE: 13/01/24 – 20/01/24 PRICE: £2095.00 AVAILABILITY: FULL
“The Slackcountry Freeride sessions are designed for experienced Snowboarders searching for fresh lines away from the beaten track and those looking to gain knowledge and insight into the World of the Backcountry just beyond”.
The Freeride mecca of St Foy has a wealth of ‘lift fed’ easy access Freeride terrain much of it rideable straight of the nearest chair. It is best known however, for its abundance of Slackcountry terrain hidden in the bowls just beyond the resort boundaries.
The idea behind this Slackcountry Freeride course is to explore and ride all that St Foy has to offer, riding the perfectly groomed pistes and inbound terrain from the lifts and exploring beyond with short hikes or the use of a Splitboard to venture further afield.
With the emphasis, as always, on Mountain Safety, the ‘Slackcountry Freeride sessions’ will teach you how to look at, respect and learn from the terrain in which you ride and increase your awareness for the high mountains helping you develop your ability and confidence to tour, climb and ride in safety amongst the high peaks.
My Slackcountry Freeride sessions provide a fun and exciting week of pure uncompromised Freeriding.
